Celebrated Kumawood actor and comedian Kwaku Manu has admitted that despite his fame, he doesn’t make light of his prayers since he believes in spirituality.
He asserts that while prosperity and relevance are never assured for the diligent worker, it is because of his grasp of spiritual matters that he has sustained his reputation over the years.
Speaking in an interview with Zion Felix that 1Family Radio monitored, Kwaku Manu said that while some of the fellow countrymen he started out with have faded away, his notoriety has continued to expand because he backs his endeavors with fervent prayers.
“There are times that you will be working very hard, but whatever you do will not please people. I believe in both physical and spiritual things. When you come and meet me praying, you won’t think this is the Kwaku Manu that you know,’’ he said.
“Like we always say, ’you are a star’ and stars move, so whatever fame you are enjoying can move to another person, and that is why prayers are very much needed to maintain one’s relevance.’’
He continued, “When you are prayerful and continue to work hard, God will always replace anything that you have lost; that is why I’m still relevant.
“There are people that I started with who have even been written off, but as I’m talking to you, my popularity is rather rising,’’ he added.
